vip treatment for the vps

i was emailed this blog from a friend who knows my love of history and i must admit i dig it. she is a self proclaimed paintress of the veeps and to her i say here, here. its about time the vice presidents get a little time in the limelight. my personal fav + historical crush is below.

she also posts quirky facts for each. here's one for jefferson: the man reaally liked the good life. when he died in 1862, he had racked up over $100,000 of debt. (in 2008 = $1.5 mill) his fam had to sell Monticello to pay it off. i still think he was a hottie.
